Dvi no signal But vga cable works.

I have been pc gaming for about a month now and all of sudden gta 5 crashes and messes up my hardrive. When my computer restarts i see a dvi no signal. I try everything from restarting my computer taking my graphics card out and puting it back in. Then i try my old vga cable and it works fine I install windows hoping that it fixes it but no luck. I even go to nearby best buy for another dvi cord but came up with same results. After doing some research I found out my graphics card needs 500W power supply. Should i just get a 500w power supply or is my motherboard the problem thanks guys. MY BUILD PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

gta 5 crashes and messes up my hardrive.

Wipe the drive and reinstall windows?

The psu isn't the best in the world but I think it has enough watts to run the build no problem.

Your GPU is recommended to have a 500w PSU, but it is not required, especially with such a low TDP on your processor.

Are you able to play GTA V on the VGA cable, or does it still crash?
